Venous Materials Interactive Sensors and Display by Hila Mor

Home > Winners > #108491


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Venous Materials

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Interactive Sensors and Display

INSPIRATION:
This project is inspired by venous structures that are ubiquitous throughout nature and inside the human body. By changing colors, veins can inform us of internal and external physical conditions. For example, veins in leaves transmit pigments that drive color change, which informs us of the internal condition of the leaf and which season it is.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Venous Materials technology developed through research on current Microfluidics, that is specifically designed for human interaction and user experience. A specilized computational tool was developed for the design process and to simulate and visualize of the color change and display of the flow within the material, according to the user input. Production process involves laser engraving and manual lab processes. Materials used are PDMS silicone and ecoline ink.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The displayed flow pattern and color change of the fluidic channels within Venous Materials inform the users of the motion and physical force that is applied on the material. The users can interact with Venous Materials by deforming or applying pressure on the material, which drives the fluid flow within the internal channels to visualize the dynamic responsive display. Therefore, Venous Materials simultaneously functions as a sensor and display of tangible information.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started June 2019 and finished April 2020 in Cambridge, MA, at the MIT Media Lab, Tangible Media group

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Through utilizing latest research with Microfluidics technology, Venous Materials was developed while focus on human interaction and UX design. To realize the design and production process, a specialized computational design and simulation tool was developed. This tool allows to simulate and visualize of the color change and display of the flow within the material, according to the user physical input. Production process involves laser engraving and lab processes. Materials used are PDMS silicone and ecoline ink.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Venous Materials prototypes size range between 5cmX5cm and 15x15cm. These samples can be assembled together to form a larger sheet.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This work present design and fabrication methods for interactive fluidic mechanisms that respond to deformation by mechanical inputs from the user. The Venous design tool provides designers with a simple way to create and validate designs of fluidic structures. It allows users to design the geometry, and simulate the flow with intended mechanical force dynamically. This leads to Interactive applications of Venous Materials, to augment human movement and everyday objects.

CHALLENGE:
While current computer chips and electronics usually require rigid and bulky components that challenges the integration with varied objects or fabrics, Venous Materials is soft and self-contained mechanism that utilizes the motion of daily activities as its energy source. Design of micro-fluid dynamics is not intuitive task, our approach and computational tool allows the design, simulation, and prototyping of fluidic interactive sensors that can be embedded in, or attached to, any object.

NAME:
Tangible Media Group, MIT Media Lab

PROFILE:
The Tangible Media Group at MIT Media Lab explores the Tangible Bits & Radical Atoms visions to seamlessly couple the dual world of bits and atoms by giving dynamic physical form to digital information and computation. To address this challenge, we presented our new vision, “Radical Atoms”, in 2012. Radical Atoms takes a leap beyond Tangible Bits by assuming a hypothetical generation of materials that can change form and appearance dynamically, becoming as reconfigurable as pixels on a screen. Radical Atoms is a computationally transformable and reconfigurable material that is bidirectionally coupled with an underlying digital model (bits) so that dynamic changes of physical form can be reflected in digital states in real time, and vice versa. Radical Atoms is the future material that can transform their shape, conform to constraints, and inform the users of their affordances. Radical Atoms is a vision for the future of human-material interaction, in which all digital information has a physical manifestation so that we can interact directly with it. We no longer think of designing the interface, but rather of the interface itself as material. We may call it “Material User Interface (MUI).”
